The traditional plant in Grünenplan is SCHOTT’s competence center for ultra-thin glass. The experts here manufacture the glass under the most modern conditions, according to the customer’s requirements – with minimal deviations of a maximum of +/- 10 micrometers. Thanks to SCHOTT’s unique down-draw process, in which the glass is drawn into the desired thickness directly from the melt, stable thicknesses of up to 70 micrometers can be achieved. This is how glass thinner than a human hair is produced.
In order to capture the special atmosphere and passion of the employees, we invited a professional photographer.
